    Windows 10 Could Be Best Microsoft OS Ever For PC Gamers
    I sure hope this ends up being true. The quote below about "fans and gamers that also play on the PC" seems a bit clueless but I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt on this one.

    "We remain committed to gaming on console, but we know that we have fans and gamers that also play on PC and phone," Spencer said. "And it's important that we build out the features that we have, learning from what we've done on console, and helping make Windows 10 the best operating system we've ever created for gamers on PCs."



    Xbox Boss Says Windows 10 Could Be Best Microsoft OS Ever For PC Gamers

    Microsoft's upcoming Windows 10 operating system could be the "best operating system we've ever created for gamers on PC," according to Xbox boss Phil Spencer. On the Xbox Wire, Spencer hyped the January 21 Windows 10 event by saying he's really excited to finally get to showcase "the great work that we're doing" in the Windows 10 space as it relates to gaming.


    "For the Xbox team, this is the beginning of our discussion with fans about the work that we're doing to bring gaming to the Windows 10 operating system," he said. "It's really nice to finally get to be able to talk about this. We'll continue the conversation throughout the year."

    Microsoft may be investing more seriously into PC gaming, but don't expect this to come at the expense of Xbox One or the company's other console projects.

    "We remain committed to gaming on console, but we know that we have fans and gamers that also play on PC and phone," Spencer said. "And it's important that we build out the features that we have, learning from what we've done on console, and helping make Windows 10 the best operating system we've ever created for gamers on PCs."

    The January 21 Windows 10 event, called The Next Chapter, will take place at the company's headquarters in Redmond and will be streamed live at 9 AM PDT. While Microsoft hasn't announced any specific plans for the event, it's possible Microsoft will talk about the operating system's rumored Cortana integration, new Xbox app, or possibly the brand-new browser, Spartan.

    Windows 10 is expected to launch for consumers by the end of the year.

    Ready yourselves, Windows 10 Technical Preview users! Updated
    program terms ahoy!


    Microsoft has sent out emails to people signed up for the Windows Insider program, informing them that changes are on the way to terms and conditions. These changes will affect anyone who is using Windows 10 Technical Preview which is due for a new build very soon.


    There have already been several public preview builds of the next version of Windows, and it is widely expected that
    the next big update will be unveiled in under a week's time on January 21. "The next chapter" of the Windows 10 story is due -- possibly including a Windows Phone 10 preview -- and it seems that new terms and conditions are needed.




    Microsoft's email gives nothing away about the changes that are coming, but it could be indicative of a change to the way the preview program works, or it could be because of a new feature of Windows 10. At the moment, the
    Participation Agreement and Terms of Use document for the Windows Insider Program is dated September 11, 2014. Four months down the line, Microsoft feels it's time for an update.


    The email itself is pretty short:



    Hello, Windows Insider –



    We hope you are continuing to enjoy the Windows Insider Program.



    We'll be sending out more exciting updates and announcements soon. In the meantime, we just wanted to alert you that the Windows Insider Program Terms of Use are changing.



    Updated program terms coming soon! We'll post them
    here, be sure to check back after January 21 to review. Your continued participation in the Program once the terms are live constitutes your acceptance.


    Thanks again for helping make Windows better,



    The Windows Team



    So... is this just legal stuff that will prove to be of little consequence to us users, or do the changes mean something more? Not long until we find out;
    prepare to download!
